The Lighter Side of Sandy...

Was listening to Mayor Bloomberg "speak Spanish." My whole family was rolling around laughing.

  1. Good afternoon, Dr. Callahan.

    I have no idea where you live/work, but I think that it is somewhere in New York.

    I hope that you and your family are safe.

    1. Hmm, this guy doesn't really nail what is happening. (In fact, you couldn't in text -- you need audio.) Bloomberg most definitely does NOT speak some pidgin Spanish or Spanglish. What he does is speak perfectly correct Spanish that *sounds* exactly like English. The closest I can come to conveying it in text is to imagine you were told you were to read an English text, but it would be filled with unfamiliar words:

      "Yoh esstoy mwee beayen."

      No just read that in an ordinary English accent.
